Improv-ish Mini Quilt Blocks

When I was making the squares for my Wedding Ring Quilt, I had a lot of extra strips from charm packs of my favorite collections.

With all these strips, I decided to make – you guessed it – mini log cabin blocks! They’re so cute! And these are some of my fabrics, so I was really excited to get into this particular stash pile 🙂

Because these were from charm packs, most of the strips were 1.5 x 5 inches… not quite big enough to do anything with. I had a few other scraps that were longer to use as the longest strips on the blocks.

Originally, I wanted the strips to be different widths, but it would have been more work – And I don’t think that’s how improv is supposed to be?

It was nice just to pick up fabric without thinking too much. Sometimes I chose not to have a bunch of aqua strips in a row and would switch out an original pick with a different color, but it still looks pretty random…

I made eight little blocks to start with, but I still have a lot of scraps. Maybe I’ll keep adding on and see how big it is? I’ll guess if it’s not big enough for a throw quilt, I could make pillow covers or something.
